Just a few months after the sale of the first unit, Italian shipyard, ISA Yachts, a Palumbo Superyachts brand, has sold a second 45m Gran Turismo vessel. Sold to a European client, the new order is scheduled for delivery in the summer of 2021.
"Without a doubt, it is a year full of satisfaction and this rewards us for the great investment made in terms of new models, infrastructures and management.” says Giuseppe Palumbo, CEO of Palumbo Superyachts.
“In 2019, we delivered five superyachts, including the new flagship Columbus Classic 80-metre M/Y Dragon, and we are building eight new boats up to 67m. For me, this is synonymous with professionalism, expertise, quality and respect of deadlines,” continues Mr Palumbo. “The challenges are still many but the evidence demonstrates what we are capable of designing and building”.

With exteriors by Team for Design – Enrico Gobbi, the new project is said to, “revisit the traits that make ISA Yachts unmistakable,” referring to design cues such as the large external arches connecting the hull to the superstructure and air intakes based on that of a sports car.
But despite this streamlined look, the interiors of the project reportedly conceal a large interior, accommodating eight guests, designed by Luca Dini Design. In terms of style, the newly sold superyacht has been described as, “the right balance between precious and natural materials with ‘high-tech’ inserts like carbon.”
